Spring Weather

So, a few days ago I was riding in a short sleeve shirt and shorts.  This morning, there was a blisstery snow storm.  I guess that’s spring though – one day winter, one day warm.  http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9 Advertisements

Chilly morning, warmer evening

I had a good ride down this morning.  But, it was pretty snowy towards the top of the mountain.  On the way back up, it was great until Ghost Falls, then, it was pretty much walking all the way home through the snow.  I could tell that Spring is on the way.  The morning was cold, but, towards the end of my ride, it had warmed up dramatically.  Whereas on prior rides, the snow stayed stiff, now, it was getting slushy as []
